    Trigg Beach

    Took this with phone. Thought the different layers are interesting.

    You're right they are interesting. I just wondered whether lifting the shadows on the cliffs might make it more interesting. What do you think?

    Yes that's much better. Wasn't sure what to do with those. Did you use light room?

    Tried Lightroom first by reducing highlights and lifting shadows but because itís a small file it didnít reproduce well. I ended up using layers in photoshop but the quality is still not great. Good enough to see if it improved the look of it.

    The original file should be good enough to adjust in Lightroom if you want to have a play. Canít do any harm and thatís the best way to learn.

    Excellent. Thanks for that

    Some subtle localized brush tool exposure adjustment might be better Closei regarding the cliff.

    Interesting composition Stapo49.
    I like the square crop and the balance of composition elements.
    Your phone has done well for exposure considering the glare on the water.

    Yes true, even just confined to the exposed rock might work.

    Re: Trigg Beach

    I would crop out the water entirely, the rocks & fence line are the interesting elements. Make it a long pano.

    Agreed, reflections of light in the water are clipping harshly..

    Re: Trigg Beach

    For me the picture is a study of texture and colour and the water is an important part of that.

    Also like the look of the water sparkle. I imagine if I was there it would make me squint, not sure that would translate as well without the clipping.

    Just saying for this individual it connects with me, it could use some small adjustments if it where mine though. I would be wary of not making it worse however since phone files can be a bit unforgiving.
    Cheers Doug
